A 34-year-old Toronto man is facing a first-degree murder charge following a fatal stabbing in Regent Park early Wednesday.
Police and paramedics responded to a call for a person with a knife at around 2:30 a.m. near Gerrard Street East and River Street, Toronto police said.
They arrived to find a victim in the middle of Gerrard with stab wounds. Paramedics attempted life-saving measures before he was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after.
No further information about the victim was immediately available. A post-mortem exam will be held July 29, and next of kin have not yet been notified, police said.
Officers found another man with a knife nearby and he was taken into custody.
The accused appeared in court virtually on Wednesday.
